KEVIN EICHNER    sculptor     educator

“Kevin Eichner pairs industry with nature. In his labored process of cutting, bending and twisting the I-beam he highlights the liveliness of a material often associated with only toughness and rigidity. Fronds grow into palm branches; the palm tree bends in the wind; a human figure emerges as a dancer. Eichner’s Modus Vivendi might suggest to some viewers the Roman myth of the nymph Daphne escaping Apollo’s desirous touch by changing into a tree.”
